The Side Deal - What a Day at the Card Show! (Part Three)

 I made a trade with another collector at the card show last weekend - we started talking a couple shows ago about what we collect and I had some things he was looking to add and vice versa.
 He's completing a Topps only run of Minnesota Twins from 1961 to the present.
 I collect a little bit of everything. Aren't these neat? I love the 1960 Topps Managers.
 These three were the big prize on my end of the deal - he had several 56's these were the ones still on my list. All in pretty good shape. I traded a 1961 AL Leaders card with Maris, Mantle and (most importantly) Minnesota Twin Jim Lemon for these three.
 Some 1961 Topps - The trade was actually all of the cards I'm showing for a bunch of Twins from 61 to 72 he was still looking for.
I'm working on getting all of the 1959 Cincinnati Reds, I think I'm pretty close.

All in all, it was a great trade, both of us left happy with the cards, and I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more from his list to some day trade again!
